I’ve really become disenchanted with working with art models in the last few weeks. I suspect this has partly to do with the personal challenges I face in trying to coordinate shoots. Some models are too busy or don’t want to work with someone who isn’t well established. Some are just rude. I follow a *lot* of models and photographers on social media. I see the work they do and the things they do. I will probably forever be confused by some of them. It’s a pretty big disappointment. I guess I’ll try to just do what I do and work with who is willing. Or something.
Science fiction is social fiction. That’s the line from Mary Shelley through H. G. Wells and Aldous Huxley and George Orwell to the politically committed writers of the sixties and seventies. It’s about using speculation as a tool with which to examine the contemporary condition. The closest it comes to prediction is in the provision of long-range weather warnings.Warren Ellis (x)
